About the vendors:
On March 6, we will be joined by representatives from Fortaleza Tequila and El Silencio Mezcal. Fortaleza has its origins deep in Mexico’s history, with Don Cenobio, a distiller who started working in 1873 in the city of Tequila, Jalisco. Five generations later, the family still makes traditional tequilas, true to their roots. El Silencio Mezcal, an organic spirit made from 10-12 year-old agaves, is distilled by a ninth generation “maestro mezcalero.” We will be pouring both their Joven and their Espadín, smooth approachable mezcals that are sure to bring all tequila lovers to the smoky side.
Then on March 7, tequilero David Ravandi of 123 Organic Tequila (Uno Dos Tres) will join us to share his terroir-driven, organic, and sustainable tequilas. In order to ensure quality throughout the entire process of making tequila, David planted his own agave plants in the 1990s – and then waited for them to grow before distilling his first batch. Now he makes three styles – blanco, reposado, and añejo – that are made for both sipping and for cocktails. We are excited to share his delicious tequilas, and his vision of sustainability, with you!
